all praise the good to Allah Lord of the worlds and surely Allah is the friend and protector of the righteous.

00:06:24--> 00:06:27

Eye being witnessed that Allah is one and has no partners.

00:06:28--> 00:06:57

Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said servant his last messenger. May Allah always and constantly send this peace and blessings to Mohammed to his family, his companions to all those who call to his way, implement his sunnah to the Day of Judgment, as to what follows are you who believe, have the consciousness of Allah be aware of the presence of Allah anywhere you are,

00:06:58--> 00:07:01

and do not die except in a state of Islam.

00:07:02--> 00:07:11

And Allah subhanaw taala has revealed in his mighty book, in the second chapter surah Al Baqarah, verse 169,

00:07:12--> 00:07:32

Allah has revealed verses, not just to the believers, but to all of humanity. And this is what we should never forget about the Quran. The last revelation is that it is not something specific to us. But it is something for all humanity and the jinn

00:07:33--> 00:07:34

until the day of resurrection.

00:07:36--> 00:08:03

And Allah has revealed in his divine form, Oh, you who? All humanity, yeah, you had NASS. So it's not Yeah, you had that in Amanu. It's all humanity. Eat from the earth, that which is lawful and wholesome, and do not follow the footsteps of the evil shaytaan. For he is to you and open enemies.

00:08:05--> 00:08:16

Surely, he incites you with evil and immorality, and to say about Allah, that which you know, not.

00:08:17--> 00:08:23

And so this verse is such an important revelation to humanity.

00:08:24--> 00:08:33

Because the evil one, the forces of evil have dedicated themselves, to take us off the path until the Day of Resurrection,

00:08:34--> 00:08:36

the war will never end.

00:08:37--> 00:08:46

They will constantly be a struggle between good and evil. But as human beings, we have to survive in the world.

00:08:47--> 00:08:55

We have to eat we have to drink we have to procreate. Allah made us like this, and connected us to the rest of

00:08:56--> 00:09:55

the universe, the creatures and our existence in this world. And so Allah subhanaw taala in his infinite mercy, gives us guidelines as to how to be a creature on the earth and speaks to humanity telling all of humanity Kulu min Marfil rd Hello, Alan Taji, Ben and that principles that extremely important principle that you eat from that which is halau it is permissible it is lawful, but also Thai even so, two things are involved here. One is permissibility but the other aspect is that it should be wholesome things. It should be good things. Many people make mistakes to think that if something is permissible, if it does not have alcoholic does not have porque then I can eat it. I

00:09:55--> 00:09:55

can drink it.

00:09:57--> 00:09:59

They miss out the spirit of this device.

00:10:00--> 00:10:11

Verse, And there are those in many parts of the world, I lived in one part of the world where the Muslims were dying faster than anybody else.

00:10:12--> 00:10:15

And it was a non Muslim majority society.

00:10:16--> 00:10:34

And we wondered, why is this possible, and then I went to a gathering of Muslims. And we ate the food and it was so tasty food, but the grease the GI on the food, you could feel it on your fingers. And when they finished the meal, they said, We want Coke Classic.

00:10:36--> 00:10:40

And so after eating the greasy meal, they drank Coca Cola.

00:10:41--> 00:10:44

This was producing a type of cement

00:10:45--> 00:10:52

in their arteries. And so Muslims were dropping dead with heart attacks faster than anybody in the society.

00:10:53--> 00:11:07

But if you looked at their meal, it would say it's halau. Because nobody said that extra greasy food is not permissible. Nobody said Coca Cola is haram.

00:11:09--> 00:11:20

But when you mix the two together like this in your system, then you are doing something which is a type of volume, it's a type of oppression on your own on your body.

00:11:22--> 00:11:30

Allah subhanaw taala then tells us to not follow the footsteps of the evil one. So when you eat, allow and tie Yep,

00:11:32--> 00:11:39

then you're going on the right path. If we go the other way, then that is what the shaytaan is doing to you. And we may not even know this.

00:11:41--> 00:11:58

And Allah tells us about the tricks that will be played upon us. He will command you Yep, Motoko he will incite you to sue with evil things with corruption within morality, and to say about Allah,

00:11:59--> 00:12:23

that which you know, not three important categories, evil things. And we see it today in in what's happening in the media. What happens in the movies online, the heroes for many of our younger generation, are bank robbers, murderous, low life, people, evil is being made to seem interesting.

00:12:25--> 00:12:28

And that is the trick of the evil one way or the other.

00:12:29--> 00:13:13

So He commands us with evil and immorality. And then that we should start saying anything we want about the Creator of the heavens of yours. And so it was throughout time that people formed religions, they found their religious groups connecting with the heavens, with the sun, with the stars, and they base their religions on this. They base their religions on the changing of seasons, especially in the northern countries, whether it's summer, winter, spring or fall, they would base their religion, on the growth of vegetation.

00:13:15--> 00:13:29

On the presence of animals, the presence of life, because when plants are growing, when animals are coming, it is life. And so they believed that this life force should be worshipped.

00:13:30--> 00:13:37

And so their religions were formed based upon this. The fall season, especially in the northern countries,

00:13:39--> 00:13:51

is probably one of the most confusing seasons that people were in historically. Because we are now in a time where the green of the summer

00:13:52--> 00:14:04

is dying. It turns beautiful at first, orange, yellow brown, but then the leaves die. The birds fly south.

00:14:05--> 00:14:07

The animals go under the ground.

00:14:08--> 00:14:20

It's like everything has become dead. That is around us. But when this season begins, right at the beginning of the fall season that we are in now,

00:14:21--> 00:14:44

the plants have reached their stage of being ripened. And so now we see in our stores pumpkins, we see squash, we see so many ripen plants, apples, so many of these plants and so the people had a celebration of tanks giving

00:14:45--> 00:14:52

in the northern countries, because it was time to give thanks. Especially when the ripened fruits were in front of you.

00:14:53--> 00:14:58

At the same time, with the coming of winter, the coming of death

00:14:59--> 00:14:59

they

00:15:00--> 00:15:22

perform certain rituals for the Lord of the debt. And it was the druid clans in Northern Europe, who perfected this and organize this. And it was celebrated in many parts of the world that are October 31. That at this time that we are going into right now, they would celebrate

00:15:24--> 00:15:31

a special celebration for the Lord of the dead son hain, while he has a biller, and they believed

00:15:32--> 00:15:44

that the Lord of the Dead would bring the souls of all the people who died the previous year to the surface, and they would take revenge upon those who did them wrong.

00:15:45--> 00:16:16

And so in order to protect themselves from the evil spirits, they put on costumes, they disguised themselves. And they did special sacrifices made to the satanic forces. So this time of year, October 31, especially, is a type of aid. It's a type of celebration for the satanic cults. And it is still happening today.

00:16:17--> 00:16:29

Not in the same way that it did in the past. But it is still going on ritualistic events will be happening outside of the eyes, the Christian church

00:16:30--> 00:16:39

in Europe in order to fight this, they banned it. They said no more celebrations on October things. And they said we will make

00:16:40--> 00:16:46

the next day November 1, to be All Saints Day.

00:16:47--> 00:16:55

Because the people died. So they said we will have a celebration for the dead. We are honoring the dead. This was their way to counteract evil.

00:16:57--> 00:17:07

But the evil forces were powerful. And they demanded something to happen on that evening. So the compromise that was made

00:17:08--> 00:17:16

was that the 31st night would be called All Hallows evening.

00:17:17--> 00:17:23

And the first of November would be called All Hallows days, it's a holy day.

00:17:25--> 00:17:30

And All Hallows evening, became known as Halloween.

00:17:32--> 00:17:36

And so this celebration continued the church bandit,

00:17:38--> 00:17:39

no Halloween.

00:17:40--> 00:17:56

It is not permissible within our understanding, you are bringing on evil forces, but the power of materialism the power of the evil continued. And it grew. And when it hit America, it became commercialized.

00:17:57--> 00:18:11

So they made a way for the children to get involved to dress up an evil disguises to come to the houses and to beg for food. And you give them candy and you give them things. And when you look at the disguises that as they're

00:18:13--> 00:18:26

the most interesting disguise that wins the price. In the Halloween contest is the devil. It is a witch. It is a goblin something connected to evil.

00:18:27--> 00:18:28

This is clear.

00:18:30--> 00:18:43

But Muslims coming into this part of the world, wanting to be part of the society. Use the old term when in Rome do like the Romans do. So we're in Canada.

00:18:45--> 00:19:09

We're in America, we're in Europe. We must do things as the other people do because we are Canadians. That is not what Canada is supposed to be. You have religious freedom here. We are not forced to follow the religious traditions of all the societies but weak minded Muslims wanted to follow it and still want to follow it today.

00:19:10--> 00:19:18

And so they say no, we will have our own way. And some even tried to say it is not Halloween. They said it is Halloween.

00:19:19--> 00:19:21

But there is no Halloween

00:19:22--> 00:19:34

because you cannot take a pig and sacrifice it and say Bismillah Allahu Akbar, I sacrifice the kunzea It doesn't make it hollow because the pig is not just aim.

00:19:35--> 00:19:37

The pig itself is haram.

00:19:38--> 00:19:40

So you cannot make this celebration

00:19:41--> 00:19:59

to be permissible even in the time of the Prophet Muhammad Sal Sal limited battle of her name when they came to the great number three and the missionary team would hang their swords on this tree topper rock. They would hang their swords in order to get blessings. Then they said to the provinces solid age Alana data on what

00:20:00--> 00:20:13

Come on down data and what and the Prophet SAW Selim said, Allahu Akbar, in the Quran, Coleman Techadon you are an ignorant people, you are following the ways of the people who came before you.

00:20:14--> 00:20:21

So in conclusion, as we go on, as we come to the 31st Sunday,

00:20:22--> 00:21:10

we need to teach our children to be strong. Don't be involved. There is no permissibility for a person to dress like a devil, or to make their children beg the Prophet saw some of them said, yeah, that earlier, Hayden Miller Yeah, the soft law, the upper hand is better than the lower hand. We are not begging for things, and teaching our children to bake. We are part of the society, but we don't have to be controlled by society. So you turn off your lights, don't be involved, make an alternative to for them. If they need an alternative, do something with them to keep them busy, but to not make permissible that which Allah made haram because the shaytaan in the hula comb I do when

00:21:10--> 00:21:33

will be he is your open enemy. May Allah subhanaw taala protect our children from the evil of this world. May Allah subhanaw taala protect our societies and give us the strength to stand up for the truth.
